Thanks.

Just wondering whether there may be any difference in the physics of the recoil phase due to the different ergonomics of the stock design.

    The bipod to rear of the rifle distance is only an inch or two longer than a conventional rifle, the thing that makes it track and shoot easier i sthe fact that 85% of the weight is behind the bipod instead of in front of it. If you scale a conventional rifle at the rear where the bag rides it doesn't weigh much the LRKM puts 3 to 4 times as much weight down on the rear bag making it easier to track well. The overall balance is very neutral making offhand shooting much easier if it is necessary.

    Thanks Shawn,

    Good to know that tail heavy makes for a solid ride on the bags.

    Now I'm curious to know if extending a forestock to near the muzzle would influence ride and accuracy?

    Although if it was a significant then the benchrest guys would probably all be running stocks or tubes that finished at the muzzle.

    Cheers,

    Matt

    Well it is in the works and I have my place in line for a LRKM. Just a few details to discuss on the build. I am stoked and looking forward to this one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Just seen this post. Ok I have to be different you know. Even after shooting the EDGE + P and sending 300 Bergers at 3135 fps. I asked Shawn to build me something off the 338 Lapua case with his + P design. So Shawn is deciding on case taper and shoulder angle, plus we are going to blow it out to something like an AI. I trust Shawn to come up with a totally awesome chambering off the LM case just like he did with the EDGE. I am stoked!!! The new found velocity of the Plus P will send those 300 Bergers with authority and with the way the Bergers expand better than anything I have ever shot long distance, combined with their unmatched accuracy at long distances I feel very good about some long distance elk whacking.
